12 Safe & Affordable Used Vehicles
Next to price, safety is one of the most important factors car shoppers consider before deciding on a vehicle.
Last week, Forbes released a list of the 12 safest used cars that are all under $19,000. So not only do these vehicles have great safety records, but they won't completely empty your wallet. Vehicles on the list include the Subaru Legacy, Honda Pilot AWD, Ford Flex 2WD, and Acura TSX.
As always, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the lowest prices being offered in your area.
|Rank||Vehicle||Used 2011 Base Model Fair Purchase Price|
|3||Honda Pilot AWD||$18,794|
|4||Chevrolet Equinox FWD/AWD||$13,878|
|5||Ford Flex 2WD||$15,116|
|6||Mazda CX-9 AWD||$13,924|
|10||BMW 328i Sedan||$17,239|
|11||Buick Enclave 2WD/4WD||$17,755|
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
